The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small spaniel with a coat of substantial silky hair of moderate length, often with a mild wave. Four colours are recognized: Black and Tan;Tri-colored; consisting of black, white and brown; Red or also known as Ruby colored, and a color classification called Blenheim, which is chestnut brown on white. The breed originated in the 20th century. Its roots can be found in the older King Charles Spaniel of the Restoration.The goal of the breeders was to get back the origianal longer limbs and straighter nose of the very first King Charles Spaniel. Over the years there were numerous crossings with Asian toy breeds like the pug, and the king Charles Spaniel developed a puggish muzzle. This puggish muzzle is what the breeders of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel wanted to breed away. What came to be, was a stunning little dog, that resembled the first dog of King Charles and became a favorite pet worldwide.

Lilly the Rottweiler

Rottweilers are one of the most misunderstood and noble of all dog breeds! Their dark looks and bad reputation caused by the media has made many fear them. Yet beneath the dark facade, they are highly devoted, loyal and lovable dogs that are very intelligent as well. Used by police forces worldwide for their high work-drive and intellignce, they have gained respect from all spheres. This is not a dog breed that sits back and lazes about. Assertive, clever- and at times domineering- it needs an equally assertive owner to be the alpha male. Otherwise a Rottweiler will take charge. They are good with children but need early socialisation and care as puppies. This beautiful dog achieves extremely well in Schutzhund and obedience training. Anyone who has ever had a Rottweiler can vouch for the fact that this is one of the best dog breeds around!

Toby, the Doberman

The Doberman Pinscher, also called the Dobermann in many countries or just simply Doberman, is a popular breed of dog that originates from Germany. Dobermans are among the most popular of pet breeds, and the breed is well known for its intelligence, alertness and loyalty as a companion dog. Although in the 1970′s-1980′s, it was used more as a guard dog, a watch dog, or as a police dog, this is less common today. In many countries, Doberman Pinschers are one of the most recognizable breeds, in part because of their actual roles in society, and in part because of media stereotyping them as viscious creatures. Although they can be assertive, careful breeding and care has improved the temperament of this breed, and the modern Doberman Pinscher is an energetic and lively breed which is ideally suited for companionship and family life, making any family proud. Anyone who has ever owned a Doberman, can vouch for this fact!

German Shepherds

German Shepherds are popular dogs around the world. Their beauty and intelligence surpasses that of a lot of breeds and thus it is not surprising that police forces utilize this breed in crime squads as well. Also known as an Alsatian, in France and the UK, this dog was originally bred to herd sheep; hence its name. Apart from their role in the police force, they are also used as guard dogs, blind dogs, search and rescue dogs, military dogs and even as therapy dogs. The German Shepherd is the third most popular breed in the US. They also make loyal and loving pets inside the home. They enjoy being around people and other animals, although socialization is critical for young puppies in order to prevent aggressive and dangerous behavior as an adult. German Shepherds are well-suited for obedience lessons in various schutzhund trials. It remains a beautiful and intelligent breed.

Chelsea, the Cocker Spaniel

The American Cocker Spaniel originated in the U.K and was brought to Canada and the United States in the late 1800s. The signature trait of the American Cocker Spaniel is its dark, expressive eyes that reflect a happy, loving, and active nature. They have long hanging ears, a rounded, refined and cleanly chiseled head with silky, feathered, medium-length coat. Cockers are divided by the breed standard into three varieties: black, ASCOB (Any Solid Color Other than Black), and parti-colors.

A Spaniel is respectful of his master’s authority without much challenge. This breed is sweet, sensitive and endearing, cheerful and merry. They are happy tail-waggers and make wonderful pets to anyone who has a lot of love to give in return. Today’s American Cocker Spaniel is as always, a small and versatile dog. It remains popular as a pet, but is also known for its workmanlike attributes that make it a stunning show dog, lively companion hunter, competitive gaming dog, and a gentle therapy dog.

Pugs

A Pug is a toy dog breed with a wrinkly face and a small body. They were bred to adorn the laps of the Chinese Emperors during the Shang Dynasty (1766-1122 BC), in Eastern China, where they were known as “Lo-Chiang-Se” or “Foo”. The Pug’s popularity spread to Tibet, where they were mainly kept by monks, and then their popularity went onto Japan, and finally to Europe. The breed was first imported in the late 16th and 17th centuries by merchants from the Dutch East Indies Trading Company and became the dog of the Dutch Royal family. Their fine, glossy coats can be apricot, fawn, silver or black. The word “pug” may have come from the old English word: Pugg, which was an affectionate term for a playful little devil or monkey, or Puck, which is a mischievous spirit of Nature. The stern expression of the Pug belies its true sense of fun. Pugs are very sociable dogs and usually stubborn as well. However, they are playful, charming, clever and are known to succeed in dog obedience skills as well. In general, they are very attentive dogs, always at their owner’s feet, on their lap, or following them from room to room.

Grover, the Chocolate Lab

The Labrador Retriever (also Labrador or Lab for short), is widely considered as the most popular dog breed in the world, and since 1991, the most popular breed by registration in the United States, the U.K , and several other countries. It is also the most popular breed of assistance dog in the United States, Australia, and many other countries. Due to their detection, intelligence and working abilities, they are widely used by the police as well. The Labrador Retriever was originally called the St. John’s Dog (from which it emerged), or the Lesser Newfoundland. Other origins of the name include the Spanish or Portuguese word for rural/agricultural workers; Portuguese “lavradores” or Spanish “labradores”. Until the 20th century black was the preferred color. Brown and yellow labs were only accepted by the 1930’s and in the late 18th century, both yellow and brown pups were culled because the color was unacceptable. A silver color is sometimes found in the United States. It is a disqualification in shows, although Silver Labradors are registered by the AKC as “chocolate”. Labradors are good-tempered, very agile, adaptable and devoted companions. They are intelligent, keen and biddable, with a strong will to please. Kindly of nature, they show no trace of aggression or undue shyness.

Kes, the Yorkie

The Yorkie was bred as a ratter, used to kill mice and rats in small places and they originated in Yorkshire, which is a rugged region in northern England. Yorkshire Terriers were given their breed name in 1874, and were first introduced in the United States in 1872. They have now become the second most popular dog breed in the United States, trailing only the Labrador Retriever, according to the ACK statistics of 2006. The Yorkie has a free, jaunty gait, with both head and tail held high. Toy stature does not necessarily mean frail or fragile. The breed standard dictates that a Yorkshire Terrier must weigh no more than seven pounds while being 8 and 9 inches tall. There is no distinction made in the standard between Yorkies of various sizes. There is no “teacup” or “standard” within the breed standard. They are intelligent, independent and courageous little dogs that make lovely pets and family members.
